The Marshall Islands Registry is a proud supporter of the Isalos.net educational initiative and its events. Most recently, the Isalos.net initiative organized a series of summer seminars for over 90 merchant marine students and young officers, as well as the students of maritime universities and young maritime executives.
The six educational seminars took place at the Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation in Piraeus, Greece and covered a wide range of topics, including: main dry and wet commodities; cargo routes and operation of vessels; chartering and charter party agreements; environmental regulations and safety on board; the human element; vetting procedures; and the legal framework in shipping, including the flag registration process.
On Monday, 23 July 2018, Captain Theodore Lalas, Fleet Operations Manager, IRI, participated in an Isalos.net summer seminar, presenting the students with information about the purpose, structure, and procedures of a ship registry. Captain Lalas also gave some background about the Marshall Islands Registry and discussed the quality service that sets the Registry apart and has led to its success in the Greek market and worldwide.
